I'm new to this beekeeping thing, but so far - it's pretty cool. The bees have been busy.
I have no idea how much honey they should be making, nor at what rate we need to add more supers, so my son and I are kind of playing it by ear.
He stoked up the smoker. He's one of those kids who likes fire - so he loves this job. i got on the bee suite and we went to work.
We checked the combs and the bees had been busy, every one we saw was filled with honey. All of this in only a couple of weeks.
We replaced the super, then added another. my son and his friend looked on, smoking the whole time.
It will be interesting to see what happens the rest of the summer.
